This place was wonderful! It was right behind main street and was in walking distance to everything. Joe the owner was very nice and helpful with questions about the area. We will definitely be coming back here.
If there was a rating above Outstanding, I would have chosen that. Farmers Guest House is one of the best B&B experiences I have ever had. Beautiful rooms, extremely accommodating owners. Fabulous food. Walking distance from downtown. I would highly recommend FGH and will book again.
The Belle Aire Mansion was very quiet and restful and the innkeepers, Jan and Lorraine were very personable and helpful. My bride and I stayed here 2 nights at the end of May for our 28th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Canopy Suite which had a sitting room, private bath, fire place, whirlpool and very comfortable bed. Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies in the room added a special touch.The breakfast was very good and Lorraine was very willing to accommodate any dietary restrictions we might have had. The Mansion is set far back on the property and is extremely quiet. It is located only a few minutes from downtown Galena. It was our first time to Galena area and it was like we had a personal assistant helping us make the most of every minute there. This B & B became an integral part of the whole Galena experience not just a sleeping place.
The Room my husband chose for our special weekend was perfect. The Anniversary package which included roses, chocolates, and 2 beautiful coffee mugs was a delightful surprise. The pecan french toast that Joe served for breakfast on our last day was my favorite. My only minor complaint is room was a little dusty but to be fair with so many interesting collectibles I would expect it. Also Joe was very knowledgeable on local history of Galena and nearby towns. My husband and I really enjoyed are getaway.
This was our 1st time at a Bed & Breakfast and I am so glad our kids sent us here. Excited breakfast, room was beautifully decorated, you have your own bathroom and 5 O' clock wine and cheese. I would highly recommend Farmers Guest House. enjoy!
I booked a romantic weekend for my wife and I, but did not tell her what town we were going to or where we were staying. She was pleasantly surprised about the entire weekend. We both thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations, the delicious breakfasts, Mike's advice about Galena, and the company of the others staying there. We will be back at Queen Anne's again!
I have stayed quite a few times and wouldn't stay anywhere else when coming back to Maquoketa. Virl and Kathy have always made me feel like one of the family; even from my first stay. I'm planning on staying two different times in June and can't wait! Thank you Virl and Kathy for all you do!
My wife and I stayed at the Queen Anne Guest House over the memorial day weekend. It was first time at a B&B. The host Mike was very nice and informative about the house and local attractions. The resturants that he suggested were all great. We can't wait to back. The location also was walking distance to downtown Galena.
My mother, sister and I stayed in the Prince George Room at Queen Anne Guest House. We LOVED it! The room was very comfortable. We enjoyed looking at all the antiques and historical parts of the home. Mike was a very helpful host. He was easy to talk to and had a lot of interesting information about Galena that we enjoyed hearing. I would strongly recommend the Queen Anne Guest House to anyone visiting Galena.
Lorraine & Jan are absolutely wonderful, we stayed in the Garden Veiw Suite, and it was more than we expected. Breakfast was wonderful and their company and knowledge of the area was great. I would recommend this B&B. Such a personal touch in everything they do!!
Excellent food and service, awesome food and incredible hosts with Virl and Kathy. We are celebrating our anniversary this weekend and could not have picked a better spot. Beautiful home with all the amenities you need. We will definitely be back. Dave & Louanna Miller, Monticello, IL.
Fabulous and attentive hosts, luxurious accommodations, and an award winning breakfast. We loved every minute of our stay, and have already booked our return. Susan and Don made certain every aspect of our stay was perfect, from the chilled water and a Keurig coffee maker in our room to the bath salts for our whirlpool. Bottomless jars of fresh baked cookies, the best fresh ground coffee we have had in ages, and a heavenly bed. Every restaurant referral they gave us was a winner as well. A perfect romantic getaway!
We had a lovely time in planning a last minute weekend getaway to Galena, IL. Tithe location was perfect. However, the decor was a little excessive and not really our taste, but it was definitely unique and full of character. The food was a little too bread-centric and I prefer more of a protein centered breakfast, so I wish there was a little more options available. We had a nice time and Joe was very helpful and kept the place very clean and cozy.
Our stay at Farmers Guest House truly exceeded our high expectations. We were warmly welcomed and cared for with excellence. Don, Susan, and Charles made sure our every need was met. The room was beautifully and cheerfully furnished with period decor that matched the building but was never fussy or dusty. There was something beautiful and interesting to see everywhere we looked. Breakfasts were truly amazing, full of delicious food served with grace and style. The gardens are restful and inviting.
We have stayed at B&Bs before and this one was top notch. Warmly greeted and made to feel at home. Breakfast was served in a warm and casual setting. The food has to be tasted to believed ! Susan & Don did their best to make sure your visit was what you hoped for.
Our first bed and breakfast experience was an excellent one at the Farmer's Guest House. Wonderfully clean and comfortable. Very welcoming hosts. Super nice fellow guests and a charming town with lots to see and do. You could stay a month and not take in everything. Very nice. Highly recommend this bed and breakfast.
We enjoyed our stay immensely. It was our first stay in a B&B and to do it in such a historic house, it made our visit to Galena that much better. Dave & Bernadine were very gracious hosts. The food which was all personally prepared and was outstanding. We look forward to our next visit there and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Deb & Gary
